Pretty City

Gritty city favorites take a walk on the feminine side.

 

Basic black is a given in the big city, and so is sleek leather—it’s how you wear them that decides whether you’re worthy of the Big Apple or simply destined for sour grapes. On the edgier side of town, punk-inspired hardware such as studs and grommets magically soften when paired with sheer fabrics. Even gold-dipped skulls get in on the dichotomy and waver between goth and glam. There’s no doubt the city can be a jungle—so, what better way to fit in than to channel your inner feline and don a little leopard (after all, it’s nearly a neutral these days). And if staying in the city that never sleeps leaves you with excess baggage (under your eyes), simply slip on a pair of oversized sunnies and you’ll be ready to make a brand new start of it.
